Protect youth from violence with lipstick


Purchase a tube of the perfect shade of lipstick and, in return, 100 percent of the proceeds from the sale will be donated to a charitable organization that supports women and children.

Sound too good to be true? Well, for once, it isn’t.

The profits from every $13 tube of Mary Kay Inc.’s Apple Berry lipstick sold will be given to charity. That may be a hefty price to pay for lipstick, but keep in mind it's for a good cause. It also helps to know that, according to Mary Kay, the Apple Berry color best suits all skin tones. Sold? If so, click here.

Mary Kay began this global initiative May 1st, but you only have until the end of the year to take advantage of it. The effort is part of the company’s corporate commitment to change the lives of women and children around the world. And I like it.

In the United States, the proceeds will be donated to Break the Cycle -- a nonprofit organization that engages, educates and empowers youth to build lives and communities free from domestic and dating violence.

Would you rather make a contribution directly to Break the Cycle? If so, click here. Go ahead, take some action.


Note: After you choose to purchase the lipstick, you will be prompted to choose an independent beauty consultant. If you don’t have one already, please take the time to search and find someone in your area. This is the person who will process your order and deliver your items. I know it’s a pain, but think about the outcome. You basically get the lipstick for free because your money goes to helping youth by fighting domestic violence. It’s worth it.
